Franco-American ethnologist who focused on the people of Mesoamerica writing several books, co-producing movies, and capturing sound recordings of rare languages from the Northern Triangle of Central America to Cape Horn in South America.

Chapman wrote on many important anthropologic issues; possibly her most important work concerning the Fuegians was Drama and Power in a Hunting Society: The Selk'nam of Tierra del Fuego (1981). She also wrote La Isla de los Estados en la prehistoria: Primeros datos arqueológicos (1987, Buenos Aires) and El Fin de Un Mundo: Los Selk'nam de Tierra del Fuego (1990, Buenos Aires).

Her last book European Encounters with the Yamana People of Cape Horn, Before and After Darwin (2010, New York, Cambridge University Press) is a narrative of the dramas played out from 1578 to 2000 in the Cape Horn area of Chile by the native people, the navigators, the missionaries and other Europeans.

Towards the end of her life, Chapman resided primarily in Buenos Aires, working and writing there. Chapman died at age 88 on 12 June 2010 in a Paris hospital.
